We have made this meal sooo many times and it is fabulous. We personally like it best when the zucchini is shredded in the food processor, then has as much water as possible squeezed out of it ( by squeezing handfuls or wrapping in a tea towel and pressing the heck out of it) then cooked in the microwave for 4 mins. We used the low fat ricotta, and used some Ragu instead of all the separate ingredients for the sauce. We do add all the herbs though because we like it to have a stronger taste. Sometimes we add some chilli powder which kicks it up a notch. We also add some mexican cheese, along with the mozarella, to the top which gives it a yummy crust. Fabulous recipe...thanks so much for posting
Fabulous! I was craving lasagna and hade a huge zucchini inmy garden. I used a can of Hunts spaghetti sauce in a can its only 1 dollar and added some more seasonings. Used Italian sausage instead of ground beef! Fabulous!!!
Wow! This was a huge hit with my guys. It was so hearty and delicious, they didn't even care that it was full of veggies and free of pasta. The zucchini on top made for a great presentation. I didnt measure my zucchini, but I think it was a bit more than called for. I also used vegetarian beef crumbles, which worked perfectly with this recipe (and are a healthier option for those looking to avoid red meat). I bookmarked this one, and I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks!
YUM! Cooked an extra 10 mins to compensate for not precooking zucchini, and I used a jar of sauce. I was surprised how little time it all took! And it got rave reviews:) Next time I'll put in a couple layers of fresh spinach. DELISH!
This recipe is AMAZING!!! I liked it better than regular lasagna and will be using the sauce part of the recipe for other recipes! :) :) :)
Awesome lasagna. I like this much better than regualar lasagna and it's so much lighter. I made two changes: I did not cook the zucchini before layering it and it turned out just the right texture- not too soft but not raw, and I added one small can of tomato sauce to the beef mixture. Delicious, thank you!
WOW!! My husband and I were IMPRESSED! Absolute winner with this one!
I had made up too much meat and veggies, I added celery too. So I had to add more moisture but instead of water I added a mixture of beef broth and milk. Other than that, I followed it to a 'T' and it came out great! Thanks for the recipe!! :)
I have been low carb for almost a year, and will tell you zucchini lasagna is a fantastic addition to the meal lineup. You can use any lasagna recipe and substitute zuch for noodles. I use a cheese slicer to make strips of zuch, boil them a few minutes in a big Texas skillet, dump the water then very lightly brown them in a little butter. Season the strips with garlic salt and onion powder and they won't be bland!
